June 13th, 2012
WordPress, WordPress News

WordPress 3.4 is finally here! All users can now safely update from Dashboard -> Updates or download and update manually, though you should probably backup first, just in case.

Right out of the box, users will notice some great new features, like a new theme customizer, Tweet embeds, HTML support in image captions, and dozens of performance improvements.

If you run into trouble with WordPress 3.4, stop by the master list of known issues and post to the support forums if your problem isn’t covered there.

    3- tweet embedding..

    This new version is nice but there are few bugs. hope they are addressed soon. However you can get good assistance from the know issues page.

    In forums on WordPress here in Brazil have reported various problems when upgraded WordPress promptly after the new version is released. This causes some trepidation, but leave out of date also makes the site vulnerable.

    Complicated situation = /

    I’m now tired of upgrading my blog to new version. I am still trying to get accustomed with it. It’s nice so far let’s see what’s next.

    i have yet to update it hope it gets better then before :)

    Yeah, no known issues here yet. But my blog’s fairly new so I haven’t installed too many plugins. So far Yoast and Akismet are still working great.

    I daren’t install any more in case they’re incompatible…!

    Well a lot of improvements as compared to the preceding version but the addition of .html support in image captions is a very good feature addition within WordPress 3.4
